Baby Dropped

Your baby dropping, also known as lightening, can happen during the last weeks of pregnancy. When the baby drops it means that the baby has gone further into the pelvis.

This is generally not a sign of preterm labor. It is very subjective and hard to tell if a baby truly dropped or not. The baby could have just change position. It is important to watch for other signs of preterm labor and talk to your doctor is you have having any problems.
